Bonamico, Kellar, Shroyer lead Big 10 individuals

FAIRMONT — The high school football season is quickly coming to a close.

Most teams around the state have only three regular-season games left on the schedule.

Of the 13 teams in the Big 10 Conference, five would be in the playoffs if the season ended today.

Lewis County would be the lone AAA participant, while Bridgeport, Fairmont Senior, Philip Barbour and Lincoln would make the Class AA field. Robert C. Byrd is just one spot outside of making the playoffs in AA.

This week, just like any other, had plenty of memorable performances from around the league, but one stood out as the most dominant.

Preston’s Josiah Nuse almost single-handedly led the Knights to a victory over East Fairmont during the Bees’ homecoming at Fairmont State University.

Nuse, a junior running back, scored six touchdowns, had a pair of two-point conversion runs and rushed for 204 yards on 21 carries in the contest.

The 40 points put on the board by Nuse was more than East Fairmont scored in the game (39).

Bridgeport’s Anthony Bonamico is still the Big 10’s leading rusher with 1,194 yards on the season, but he has company in the 1,000-yard club.

Fairmont Senior’s Noah Harmon broke into triple figures in the Polar Bears’ win over Braxton County. He now has 1,026 yards on the season. The last Bear to break 1,000 yards rushing in a season was Trevor Malnick (1,108) back in 2011. With three games left, Harmon has a very good chance of topping that mark.

Lincoln’s Ty Seibel is third with 947 yards and Nuse continues his climb up the leaderboard, sitting in fourth with 831 total yards.

Lewis County’s Mark Metzgar rounds out the Top 5 with 770 yards.

North Marion’s Ryan Elliott leads his team with an even 500 yards and is ninth in the conference in rushing.

East Fairmont is paced by Scotty Shroyer with 257, which is 23rd in the Big 10.

    West Virginia University football coach Dana Holgorsen was happy with his team’s first practice of the 2014 season.
    Of course, he would note, “Everybody in the country has a good first day.”

    Very different.

    After a rather sloppy Area tournament, Post 17 Fairmont managed to turn things around Thursday afternoon at Hawley Field in Morgantown, staying alive with a 4-2 win over Elkins in the American Legion state baseball tournament.
    While it’s usually hitting that gets Fairmont by, Thursday it was the pitching and the defense.

  • HERTZEL COLUMN: Social media adds another thing to watch for coaches

    As someone who has gotten himself in enough hot water with a misplaced Tweet, when West Virginia University quarterback Clint Trickett hit the send button on July 17 sending out to the cyberworld what should have remained there with him on the couch on which he was sitting, I could feel his pain.

  • WVU basketball non-conference schedule released

    After playing challenging schedules along with the tough Big 12 road, West Virginia University has backed off some this season on its non-conference schedule that was released Thursday.
    West Virginia is coming off a 17-16 season in which it failed to reach the NCAA Tournament and lost to Georgetown in the first round of the NIT.

  • Steelers WR Antonio Brown aims for repeat of 2013

    Antonio Brown rolled up to the dorms at Saint Vincent College last week in a Mercedes conversion van.
    It’s fitting in a way. Five years into a blossoming career, the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver is playing the role of dad — OK, maybe slightly older brother — to a group long on talent but short on experience.
